* AccidentalInnuendo: For some reason, a guy just can't seem to go on a [[HaveAGayOldTime boner]] themed crime spree without people giggling about it decades later.
* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation:
** Considering I'm... [[Film/TheDarkKnight ahead of the curve]], any and ''ALL'' interpretations are equally likely, and not even mutually exclusive!
** Was I ''really'' lying to ComicBook/{{Harley|Quinn}} about my past back when we first met, or was I just telling her the story I remembered at that particular time? [[ComicBook/TheKillingJoke Like I've told you,]] [[MultipleChoicePast I always remember it differently.]] [[MindScrew Unless, of course, I'm lying about that too.]]
* ArchivePanic: Given I've been at it about as long as Bat Brain (74 years, and no grey hair to show for it) I've amassed quite a few appearances in and out of the funny books.
* AwardSnub: Sure, my [[Creator/MarkHamill voice]] [[Creator/HeathLedger pals]] and I have gotten quite a few awards through the years, but there are times when I have gotten a bit more Award Snubs too. One of them was the 2012 Joystick Award for one of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BlOnqRginfM the Top Gaming Moments]]: [[spoiler:my DownerEnding]] in ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamCity''. Unfortunately, even this [[spoiler:TearJerker ending]] lost to "[[http://www.digitalspy.com/gaming/news/a433646/skyrim-voted-game-of-the-year-at-2012-golden-joystick-awards.html The Throat of the World]]" in ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim''! DudeWheresMyRespect Whoever snubbed me of my best moment has ''surely'' [[Series/ILoveLucy got some 'splainin' to do]]!
** And of course, a lot of people got up in arms when [[Creator/JackNicholson ol' Jackie Boy]] didn't get so much as an Oscar nomination. Heck, Anton Furst reamed out the academy for it.
* BaseBreaker: It looks like I've become this in recent years. Either you love me for being such a great and iconic villain, or you think I'm used too much and you're sick to death of me.
* CantUnHearIt: Regardless of which version of me you think is best, odds are that Creator/MarkHamill's interpretation is the one you'll hear in your head when reading my lines. Unless my Creator/HeathLedger voice put a smile on your face.
* CompleteMonster: I will concede that [[{{Understatement}} I'm not very nice]]. See my long list of misdeeds on any of these pages:
** Both my ComicBook/PostCrisis and ComicBook/{{New 52}} incarnations, as well as my ''ComicBook/{{Joker}}'' incarnation, in Monster/DCAndVertigo
** ''WebVideo/ImAMarvelAndImADC'' and ''WebVideo/TheJokerBlogs'' in Monster/FanWorks
** ''Film/{{Batman}}'' and ''Film/TheDarkKnight'' in Monster/{{Film}}
** ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamSeries'' and ''VideoGame/InjusticeGodsAmongUs'' in Monster/VideoGamesAndVisualNovels
** Numerous Franchise/{{DCAU}} and ''WesternAnimation/DCUniverseAnimatedOriginalMovies'' works, and ''WesternAnimation/TheBatman'' in Monster/DCAnimation
* CrazyAwesome: Admit it, laughing fishes were an awesome idea. Pity it didn't work.
* CreepyAwesome: I'm quite possibly the most terrifying person in the DCUniverse. And you ''love me'' for it.
* CrossesTheLineTwice: Line? ''LINE?!'' '''BAH-HAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAA!!'''
* DracoInLeatherPants: Well, whaddaya know? [[AllGirlsWantBadBoys I'm a hit with the ladies!]]
** [[EvenTheGuysWantHim Yes, fellas, I see you too]]. Now take them [[YaoiGenre creepy pictures]] off [[TheInternetIsForPorn the Interwebs]], ''pronto''.
* DudeNotFunny: What do you mean, not funny? Have you no sense of humor?
* EnsembleDarkhorse: Though originally a one-shot VillainOfTheWeek, I proved popular enough to return to mess about with Bat-brain's head again and again.
* EvilIsCool: Of course I am! [[LaughablyEvil I'm a riot]], [[NightmareFuel I'm terrifying]], [[MagnificentBastard I'm smart]], what's not to like?
* FandomRivalry: Apparently, some of you people are beating each other to death over whether Creator/MarkHamill or Creator/HeathLedger is the better me, with Creator/JaredLeto fans soon to join the fray. Get over it! Either of them is perfectly fine and dandy as a valid me! After all, the more [[MultipleChoicePast Multiple Choice my Past the better]].
* FashionVictimVillain: Of course, there are some times when some of my costumes seem to be laughable. In the ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheBraveAndTheBold'' incarnation of ''ComicBook/EmperorJoker'', for example, my [[http://thebatmanuniverse.net/image/TV/News/01-Batman-The%20Brave%20and%20the%20Bold/Season%202/018-Emperor%20Joker/BTBTB-Emperor%20Joker%20Screenshot%2005.jpg spandexed Emperor Jester costume]] looks nothing at all like [[http://ifanboy.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/10/Emperor-Joker-1-2000.jpg the royal one I wore]] in the ''Franchise/{{Superman}}'' original comic book! In fact, it felt so laughable, that the biggest flaw in my costume is the WhoopeeCushion in my crown, which looks almost like... you know... [[UnfortunateCharacterDesign let's just say...]] [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar a condom]]. Whoever designed my costume like this in the show's episode creation department deserves to realize the biggest ''[[HaveAGayOldTime boner]]'' (i.e., mistake) they'll never forget!
* FoeYay: Of the century, folks. [[http://community.livejournal.com/joker_in_ink/42633.html Batsy darling and I were meant to be together like this, two peas in a pod!]] Of course he's in denial, but perhaps he's simply unaware he '''has''' feelings, since someone has yet to enlighten him of the concept of Foe Yay on his trope page.
* FunnyAneurysmMoment: Oh, aren't they all? Though reading about those times when others have tried to steal ''my'' idea of copyrighting a lifeform of my own design had me giggle. If someone as clever and handsome as me couldn't pull it off, what makes them think they can? Wait, what do you mean, '''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diamond_v._Chakrabarty they]]''' '''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flavr_Savr did?!]]'''
* HoYay: I did have that fling with one of my mooks in "The Devil's Advocate" now, didn't I... And he's lucky just his legs got broken.

* MemeticMutation: My [[http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b318/calamityx1/1196633252560.jpg "Joker Face"]] from ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' has turned into a forum ImageMacro for many a ViolationOfCommonSense or firm grasps of the IdiotBall.
** [[WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries "You killed Captain Clown. YOU KILLED CAPTAIN CLOWN! You're going to fry like a grilled cheese sandwich!]]
** There's also [[FountainOfMemes nearly everything that spewed out of my mouth]] when Creator/HeathLedger [[Film/TheDarkKnight became me]].
* MemeticMolester: I'm this because of some fans' views on what happened in ''ComicBook/TheKillingJoke'', despite Creator/AlanMoore [[WordOfGod saying]] I did not touch Jimmy Gordon or his daughter in ''[[RapeAsDrama that]]'' way. Given ol' Beardie's ''other'' work, kinda hard to believe him. On the other hand, [[{{ComicBook/Joker}} in my self-titled graphic novel]], there was Jonny Jonny's ex-wife...
* MoralEventHorizon:
** [[ComicBook/TheKillingJoke Crippling Jimmy's daughter?]] [[ComicBook/ADeathInTheFamily Bashing in Robin's brains with a crowbar?]] [[ComicBook/BatmanNoMansLand Blowing Sarah Essen's head off?]] Something ''else'' I've missed? I've performed so many atrocities that it's hard to say ''when'' I completely damned myself. And you [[EvilIsCool love me for it]]!
** Oh, wait, everyone! I just remembered! [[DealWithTheDevil I sold my soul]] to that Neron guy, that's when! Damn great cigars I got!
** Many fans haven't forgiven me [[Film/{{Batman}} for shooting Bob]]. He ''was'' my number one guy, you know.
* NeverLiveItDown: If that stooge from ''WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall'' is any indication, it's been over fifty years and people are ''still'' laughing at my boner. Honestly! Time may change language, but it doesn't erase HaveAGayOldTime.
* TheScrappy:
** Apparently, nobody liked my new look from the second season of [[WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries the cartoons]]. Oh come on, it can't be that...JUMPING JIMINY CHRISTMAS!! WHAT HAVE THEY DONE TO ME?! They sucked the color out! My eyes look like some alien's possessed me! KILL IT! KILL IT! *''BANG! BANG!''*
*** Thankfully, they did a better job with the [[WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague next series']] rendition of me.
** My cartoon selves seem to be prone to this; the [[WesternAnimation/TheBatman dread-locked kung-fu-fighting version of me]] really got a lot of flack. Admittedly, wearing that torn-up purple straitjacket, and then my sweet jacket [[DoesNotLikeShoes without shoes]] was probably not my best idea.
* WTHCastingAgency:
** Remember when people thought that casting [[Creator/HeathLedger that gay cowboy]] as me was a terrible idea? That guy really nailed it, though -- I do love a bit of BlackComedy.
** And admit it, if you heard [[Creator/MarkHamill Luke Skywalker]] [[WhatCouldHaveBeen was playing me over]] Creator/TimCurry back when ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' first aired you might not have been very happy at first. But again, this worked out ''very'' well too.
** And then there was the [[WesternAnimation/YoungJustice time]] [[Creator/BrentSpiner Data]] was cast as yours truly. This one was a teensy bit more [[LoveItOrHateIt contentious]], eh?
* VillainSue: My self from the ComicBook/{{New 52}}''... you know, I'll be honest: I like giving Batsy a bad time, being a challenge for him and all. But those idiots at Creator/DCComics have gone ''too'' far in the concept of "giving Batsy a challenge". I mean, ''making me immortal''? I like the idea of getting no gray hairs, but what do I look like, one of those ''Film/{{Highlander}}'' guys?
